Project Overview

The 63.4km2 Takzim Project is comprised of four licence blocks situated in north-central Morocco, approximately 200km south of the capital Rabat and 35km northeast of Marrakech. The Company's 100% owned subsidiary, Aterian Resources is undertaking preliminary exploration for copper and zinc, targetting a quartz carbonate vein system.

The Takzim Project is located approximately 6.5km east of the historic Bir n Hass copper mine.

Exploration Programme

The Takzim Project comprises Palaeozoic metamudstones and quartzites, proximal to a Hercynian-age granite and mafic intrusives.

A number of parallel quartz carbonate veins have been mapped with a NNE orientation. The largest vein strikes discontinuously for over 3km and is up to 15m wide. Assays from rock chips collected along these veins returned grades including 9.18% Cu, 4.53% Cu, 4.48% Zn, and 0.69% Zn.

Further work at the Takzim Project will include rock chip sampling, geological mapping and a ground magnetic survey to identify the scale and the nature of the mineralisation project.
